Lynn Illuminations – Game On, King's Lynn
Three interactive artworks focusing on climate change will be staged between September 2020 and April 2022 and all of them will be devised in King’s Lynn with creative organisations.
A series of art projections are lighting up King’s Lynn - showcasing the town it as a national centre for cultural and creative innovation.
Three interactive artworks focusing on climate change will be staged in the evenings between September 2020 and April 2022 and all of them will be devised in King’s Lynn with creative organisations.
The five main sites in King's Lynn town centre for the evening projections will be:
The Custom House.
Greyfriars Tower and Park.
St Nicholas’ Chapel.
Tuesday Market Place.
It is hoped the events will be attended by 6,500 people and generate 24,000 online engagements. An estimated 37 local creative businesses will be involved in producing the shows. GAME ON is being delivered by the borough council in partnership with Collusion, a not-for-profit cultural organisation with which it has been working for the past three years.
Collusion director Rachel Drury said: “Collusion loves working in King’s Lynn, so we’re really delighted that investment from partners including Arts Council England and New Anglia LEP will allow us to create three exciting new artworks. The town’s network of large-scale outdoor projectors provides a unique opportunity for it to lead the way nationally in the development of site-specific, exemplary work that is both high quality and engages the public in amazing, immersive and interactive experiences.”

Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk (BCKLWN),
